Given that we have no clear process to track reimbursement requests over
time, late reimbursement requests often involve digging through email
archives to understand their status.

I agree that improving the processes (using e.g. RT) would be better,
but this hasn't happened yet. If you want to join the auditor@ team to
make that happen, you're welcome. But I am already spending far more
time than I would like on financial stuff.

Also, I really don't see why you feel that it's necessary to have the
possibility to wait for a year before submitting a reimbursement
